Gary Moore’s 1980s Hamer Vector

Gary acquired this guitar sometime in the mid-80s. The most notable appearance was during the recording of the music video for Ready For Love in 1989, and on the photos in the booklet from the Empty Rooms (Summer 1985 Version) vinyl.

The guitar was finished in light blue, and it featured a single humbucker in the bridge position, most likely a DiMarzio. There doesn’t seem to exist a single photo or video of Gary using this guitar live, but if you happen to stumble upon something be sure to leave a comment.

I’ve heard from Neil Carter that Gary loaned the Vector from him for the videoshoot so Neil has some better acknowledgement about it.
